The research group Bioinformatics and Biomedical Signals Laboratory (B2SLab) of the Biomedical Engineering Research Centre (CREB) at the UPC has created the spin-off Vincer.AI, which was founded to become the first artificial intelligence (AI) auditing algorithm company in the health field.

The team of experts has designed a set of auditing tools that standardises the quality control for AI health models, including a database of risks that were previously identified in AI systems for health care. Once the new system has been audited, a cryptographic mark serves as the technology seal to verify compliance of each prediction. Having greater trust in AI systems will reduce the time and resources needed to transfer new scientific advances to clinical practice and ensure traceability, so that final users can verify compliance of AI providers in the health sector.

The project was one of three CREB projects that won an award in the CaixaResearch Validate 2021 call of La Caixa Foundation, in collaboration with Caixa Capital Risc and the European Institute of Innovation & Technology (EIT Health), for new biomedical projects with a social impact and with the aim of promoting innovation and transfer of knowledge and technologies in the area of biomedicine and health.
